Quotes:
From Jack Reacher (2012)
Linsky: I made a mistake. I mean, you can still use me, just tell me how to fix...
The Zec: To survive. Don't say "fix it," because you can't. We covered up the one mess. You made another.
Linsky: All right. You're right. You're right. You're absolutely right. I'm sorry. Just tell me what I have to do.
The Zec: I was in prison in Siberia. I spent my first winter wearing a dead man's coat. A hole in one pocket. I chewed these fingers off before the frostbite could turn to gangrene. These I gave up to avoid working in the sulfur mine. That is how I survived when so many others did not. A man this rare can always be of use. So show me. Show me you are rare. Show me you'll do anything to survive.
Linsky: I don't understand.
The Zec: The fingers from your left hand.
Linsky: Have you... have you got a knife?
The Zec: Did I have a knife in Siberia?
Linsky: No... come on, you've got to be kidding.
The Zec: You can do it. Show me.
